We bring filmmakers and film enthusiasts together in their living rooms. Stream comfortably from home on your PC, laptop, or television all videos with “selected” status during the online festival days. From day 1, viewers will have the opportunity to see all selected films. In addition, during the first four days producers and directors of the selected films will be able to make comments and interviews, which will be released on vimeo and youtube.
